AN O.K. CRUISE

Sail Date: February 17, 2007

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

THIS CRUISE WAS NOT WHAT I HAD EXPECTED FROM THE DIFFERENT PEOPLE I HAD SPOKE TO. EVERYONE TOLD ME THE STAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND UPSTANDING, NOT TRUE OUR ROOM STEWART NEVER EVEN APPROACHED US MY NAME. WE ACTUALLY HAD TO GO FIND HIM TO AT LEAST KNOW WHO HE WAS IN CASE WE HAD PROBLEMS. THE SHIP WAS SMALL BUT IT WAS CLEAN. OUR ROOM WAS VERY ROOMY AND THAT WAS GREAT. WE GOT ON THE BOAT SATURDAY AND GOT UP SUNDAY MORNING TO NO HOT WATER AND CALLED THE MAINT. DEPT. AND THEY CALLED US BACK MONDAY NIGHT. TALK ABOUT FAST SERVICE. OUR HEAD WAITER WAS EXCELLENT HIS NAME WAS MARIO!! THE BUFFET ON THE LIDO DECK WAS O.K. IF YOU LIKE CHEESEBURGERS EVERYDAY. THE HAD A FEW DIFFERENT THINGS NOT MUCH. THE STAFF IN THE DINING ROOM WAS NOT GOOD AT ALL MY FATHER TRAVELED WITH US AND HE WAS EATING BEEF TIPS ONE DAY AND GOT ONE STUCK IN HIS THROAT AND STARTED CHOCKING TO DEATH MY MOTHER STARTED YELLING FOR HELP AND THE CARNIVAL STAFF JUST LOOKED AT HER LIKE SHE WAS STUPID!! THANK GOODNESS FOR THE GUY SITTING NEXT TO THEM WHO HELPED OUT OR MY FATHER WOULD NOT BE HERE TODAY. THE KIDS PROGRAM WAS NOT GOOD AT ALL FOR THE 6-8 AGE GROUP MY 6 YEAR OLD NEVER WANTED TO GO SO HE STUCK WITH ME AND MY HUSBAND MOST OF THE TIME. THE OVERALL VACATION WAS O.K. BUT I WILL NOT GO ON THAT ONE AGAIN!!

Pros: OUR HEAD WAITER

Cons: THE KIDS CLUB

COZUMEL WAS O.K. YOU COULD TELL THEY WERE STILL TRYING TO REBUILD FROM THE HURRICANE. WE WENT TO PLAYA MIA AND IT WAS O.K. THE STAFF WERE RUDE THOUGH MY 12 YR. OLD SON SWAM OUT TO THE WATER TRAMPOLINE AND GOT STUNG BY A JELLY FISH AND WOULD NOT SWIM BACK AND I ASKED IF THEY WOULD SEND SOMEONE OUT TO GET HIM AND THEY JUST SMILED AND PRETTY MUCH IGNORED ME SO HE FLAGGED DOWN THE RESCUE BOAT AND EVERYONE THAT WAS ON THE TRAMPOLINE GOT ON THE BOAT BECAUSE THEY WERE SCARED TO GET BACK IN THE WATER!
